Question 3

Your answer is correct.

Multiples analysis: Turner Corp. has debt of $230 million and generated a net income of $121 million in the last fiscal year. In attempting to determine the total value of the firm, an investor identified a similar firm in Jacobs, Inc., an all-equity firm. This firm had 150 million shares outstanding, a share price of $14.25, and net income of $182 million. What is the total value of Turner Corp.? Round to the nearest million dollars.

Solution: Given,Turner Corp has  Debt=$230 million

Net income= $121 million

Jacobs has Equity= 150 millionx$ 14.25

=$2134 million and

Net income= $182 million

So Ke=NI/ Value of equity=$182/$2134=8.53%[as it is all equity firm Ke=Ko]

Value of the firm= NOI/K0

We know,K0=Ke-(Ke-Kd)x B/S


Or, 0.0853=0.0853-(0.0853-Kd)x0.11

Or,Kd=0.09 or 9%

So value of the firm=${121+(230×0.09)}/0.0853

=$1661 million



$1,715 million


$1,421 million


$1,651 million


$1,191 million
